Who is N.A. Mowmai?
N. A. Mowmai was born in the 1960’s to parents who instilled in her the conservative values that still serve her well. She grew up during the height of the Feminist Movement, hearing the shrill voices screaming for “equal rights.” Rather than listening to those voices, she chose a different path.
She climbed the corporate ladder without much fanfare using the rungs, not the backs of others. She leads publicly, both men and women, and privately by example. She doesn’t have to scream “I am powerful” as weaker women do. All those around her know that she is powerful by the quiet exercise of her influence. She agrees with Margaret Thatcher who said, “Being powerful is a lot like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”
She believes in individual liberty, responsibility and accountability. She knows that her life is the result of her choices. Regardless of the choice, she accepted the consequences, learned the lessons and moved forward. As a result, she expects those around her to do the same. No excuses. No whining.
She knows that it is best to teach a woman to fish rather than give her a fish. Helping a woman develop the skills leading to independence and interdependence is better than creating a dependent woman. She eschews government mandated programs that artificially elevate women, preferring to rise and to help others rise based on merits, not their gender or race. She earned her place at the adult’s table. Others will have to do the same.
She is compassionate and willing to help. However, she knows that we learn from the consequences of bad choices and that shielding women from painful consequences short circuits learning and stunts growth. She will not provide or countenance a “free pass” on consequences.
In the past, she was probably quiet, almost reticent. Today, she is controversial, plain speaking and provocative. She is the antithesis of feminism, a powerful woman owing nothing to the Feminist Movement beyond a “thank you” for opening the door.
N. A. Mowmai is a voice of the silent majority of women who are becoming more vocal. She is the voice of every woman who has succeeded on merits and is tired of hearing the vocal minority’s incessant droning for their “rights.” She is a voice for women who want government out of their life, their business and their pocketbook.
Don’t be surprised when she says, “Ladies, Get over it!”, “Knock it off!” or “Enough is enough.”
Watch out world! Here we come!
